Boundary Fire Walls

Boundary Fire Walls

IMPORTANT NOTICE: FireCrunch MgO Board FCA is a “Non-Metal Corrosive”, MgO “Sulphate” Board (MgSO4), Australian NATA Labs Certified, Click Here for Non Chloride Non Corrosive Content Certificate.

Boundary fire walls are required when two adjacent buildings are constructed within a certain minimum distance from the building boundary or actually on the boundary and fire resistant buildings board is required to enable such a fire safe building and fire separation wall to be constructed.

FireCrunch is fire tested and certified to BCA standards from FRL 30/30/30 BAL FZ ( Bushfires)to FRL 90/90/90 high-rise residential apartment blocks and commercial buildings  it is also used extensively for boundary firewalls where extremes of FRL to 90/90/90 are required

Fire safe Gyprock alternative building board like Firecrunch is required to suit the long term requirement in exterior weather conditions affecting boundary fire walls . Firecrunch Magnesium Oxide (MgO) Board or MgO board is a fire safe building board and fire tested building board which will meet the boundary fire wall provisions

Additionally, FireCrunch is an  environmental building board with less than 5% pollute Co2 in manufacture ( New Scientist magazine ) USA ,and is a bushfire building and bushfire safe building product manufactured from Magnesium Oxide (MgO) and other composites which has been fire tested by the CSIRO to make it Australia only real Bushfire safe building board

  • Non-asbestos, Australian certification.
  • Resistant to flooding and prolonged water emersion.
  • Resistant to bacteria moisture, humidity, mould and mildew.
  • Completely resistant to termites and insects.
  • Low thermal conductivity ~0.44 (W/mk).
  • Higher R values than plasterboard.
  • Less expensive, eliminates multiple layers of plasterboard for high FRL.

 

Australian Standards (Certificated in Australia)

See certifications:

Fire
1.5 hours 1 x 10mm sheet.

Impact
10 times stronger than plasterboard, load bearing 55kN (1.5 hrs) at 1200⁰C (see CSIRO fire test report).

Acoustics
Rw 62 AS/717.1 (see report certification).

Asbestos
Nil content test AS 4964 R and U value (see Tech info charts).

Handling
Cuts, saws, drills, routs, with timber tools, power gun screwing, massive time saving on installation

Labour cost benefits
FireCrunch Requires 1 sheet each side for FRL up to FRL 90/90/90 (p/ board needs 3 layers 13mm each side).

Strength
10 x Stronger than Plaster Board.

Eco-Friendly
95% less Co2 Emission than Plaster Board
